The Action Congress Party (ACP) was a political party in Ghana during the Third Republic (1979-1981).

In elections held on 18 June 1979, ACP presidential candidate, Frank Bernasko, won 9.4% of the vote[1] and the party won 10 of 140 seats in the National Assembly.[2]

Following the coup d'état of 31 December 1981, the Provisional National Defence Council took over government and banned all political parties including the ACP.
